Working with The Lakes Aquarium we are hosting a Little Trackers Week. On purchasing combined tickets, children will be given a work sheet, they must find the locations that Oscar and Plumpton have visited, answering some questions on the way.
Each attraction will be hosting various other activities alongside this throughout the week, such as ‘Meet the Owls’ at Haverthwaite and ‘Meet the Creatures’ at the Aquarium.
There will also be crafts and activities as well as face painting*.
Please check for updates and details on facebook for daily events as not all activities run all week.
Diesel Trains will be running all 1/2 term for connections to Lakeside Aquarium and Windermere Lake Cruises.
Can you track Oscar the Otter and Plumpton bear as they head off on their adventures?

Join Father Christmas and his helpers on a magical family journey aboard our ‘Santa Express’. Presents for the children, festive treat and seasonal drink for the adults, with Carols and a good time for all.
Take the 1 ½ hr return journey between Haverthwaite & Lakeside, absorbing the festive spirit from all the colourful elves to experience a journey you’ll never forget!
The excitement builds as you sit in your decorated carriage, the doors close, and on the platform is a procession of elves and of course, Father Christmas, waving to all the children as they pass.
As carols play, adults are given a festive treat and seasonal drink. You are teased while you hear a ruckus from a neighboring carriage- he must be on his way! With a boom the carriage door opens and chief elf ‘JoJo’ enters, followed by more elves the ‘panto’ atmosphere is alive, after introductions there is carol singing, getting everyone on-board into the Christmas spirit. In all the excitement, a tall figure in red enters the carriage, watch the children’s faces ‘light-up’, it’s Father Christmas! With the help of his elves he visits every child, delivering a handpicked present.
Take this magical journey and create memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
